Rest, Low Cost Hobbies, Thankfull

I was lazy today.
I did my stepper and weights today after a little nap. I couldn’t function without it and wouldn’t have exercised at all without the nap. I slept for a half hour to an hour. Sometimes our body needs rest.

Low Cost hobbies: I responded to pearshaped girl’s blog with this:
Hobbies do not have to cost a lot of money Even if you’re bad at it by practice you get better.
I decided to add more to the low cost hobbies;


1. Writing a book you already have a computer. I have ADHD and am Bad editor. I still got a couple of books published. Is there a poet, a columnist or a novelist in you? I don’t get much money from my writing but it’s a hobby I love.
2. Exercise to cheap DVDs: what a great hobby.
3. Bath salts “Epson Salt is very cheap” and you can treat yourself and your husband with the results. There recipes on the net.
4. Scrap/junk Artist: I am not talking about scrap book art but art made from scraps and junk. Make something beautiful.
5. You can get a book on giving back and foot massages for a hobby. The library might have some free resources.
6. Dancing: Well I am uncoordinated. Cheap how to DVDs can be found all over the place/
7. Volunteer work you seem to be so caring your hobby can be caring for others.
8. Make reading a hobby and make your destination the library.
9. Walking another cheap for of activity and you can walk with other people, and or walk dogs.
10. Scrap quilting. Make quilts out of used and torn clothes.

I hope to do a lot of scrapbooking this year. I have a ton of pictures in these boxes and I need to get into sorting and organizing them into a scrapbook.

What a good topic, thanks.

Thanks for the list, iPortion. You're right, hobbies don't *have* to cost a lot of money. My main interest is scrapbooking, and that can get so pricey because I love all the little extras that can be added to the pages. I think I'll make scrapbooking my second hobby and put more of a focus on some less-expensive pass-times.

Take care,
PSG

p.s. Thanks again for your encouraging comments on my blog, you make my day!
